Why Phil & Becky chose Panama City Beach Area

We looked for the right place for 2 years and fell in love with the powder soft, white sand beaches, friendly people, and offerings of Panama City Beach. We also liked how clean the WaterCrest property is, the onsite 24 hour security, heated pool and beautiful sunset views from our balcony. We want your stay to be enjoyable and welcome your feedback, as well as suggestions and tips for other guests. If you stay with us, please add your comments to our guests journal (left behind inside the unit). We hope WaterCrest Unit 705 will become part of your vacation tradition, as much as it is part of ours. - Phil & Becky

The perfect beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is by far the best we have ever rented for vacation in PCB. Not only is it beautifully decorated, it has everything you could ever need or want. We loved the roominess of the unit, larger kitchen and bedrooms than what we are used to. Everything about it including comfy beds, perfect bathrooms, large patio balcony was absolutely the best. Thanks for all you have put into your condo! We surely hope to stay there again!!

Beautiful condo! Everything you need to relax at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family fell in love with unit 705 the minute we opened the door and saw the beautiful view of the gulf. The units living room has a wall of glass windows which open onto the balcony allowing guests the luxury of relaxing in the comfort of the beautifully decorated air conditioned room, while enjoying the view of the emerald gulf waters. The master bedroom also opens onto the balcony. The balcony itself was probably one of our favorite spots to spend time. It sits above the pool area, and has beautiful plants and a nice corner couch for relaxing while you soak up the sights and sounds of the sea.

Indoors the condo is gorgeous. The decor is a sea motif. It is carried out throughout the unit in loving detail. The condo has absolutely everything that anyone might need to enjoy a stay at the beach. Umbrella service at the beach for two people is provided. There are also extra chairs and umbrellas as well as sand toys and boogie boards to use. The unit has a laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer. This makes it so convenient for dealing with the inevitable "beach laundry". There is also a dishwasher, flat screen televisions, an Xbox 360 and free DVD rentals from the lobby kiosk. The unit is served by 2 elevators, and even though we stayed over the busy holiday weekend, the wait time for the elevators really wasn't bad. For the most part the condo was quiet and the beds were super comfy so we slept very well. The unit has a master bedroom with a king sized bed and private bathroom. The guest bedroom has a full size bed and a twin bed with another bathroom right next to it. It is obvious that the owners really want their guests to enjoy their stay. Lots of little extras are available. There is even a menu book provided with several local restaurants menus to peruse. We enjoyed trying a couple of local places, but also ate in a few times. We loved having space to spread out and relax. With two teenagers on the trip, the ability for everyone to have their own space was wonderful! I also want to commend the security and chair attendant staff. During some rough sea conditions they were on top of things and called the beach patrol quickly when people were in trouble in the water. I truly think this is probably the nicest place we have ever stayed, and we have stayed at some nice ones. I can't say enough nice things about the whole experience! Thanks Phil and Becky!

You'll Never Find Another Vacation Spot Like This Again...

  • 5 of 5

The Bonks take "home away from home" to a whole new level with their beautiful condo. The décor, the ambience, the location...ALL are spot on! Anything you need? It's there. You need a boogie board? There. You need a hairdryer? There. You need chairs on the beach that you don't have to pay for? There. You need secured Wi-Fi? There. You need the most comfortable bed in which you've ever slept? There. You need a beautiful kitchen that includes all the amenities (dishwasher, microwave, blender, etc.)? There. You need a shaded balcony in which you can relax and gaze upon the ocean? There. You need a board game? There. DVD? There. Need a bag in which you can shove all your beach stuff? There. Need extra shampoo, soap, lotion? There.

IT'S ALL THERE, YOU GUYS. And it is worth every shiny penny that you pay. I. Kid. You. Not.

Book this place will have zero regrets.

Beautiful condominium with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo didn't disappoint. The kitchen was stocked with not only cooking utensils but aluminum foil, sandwich bags, garbage bags, grocery store bags for miscellaneous items, etc. The beach boogie boards and toys supplied in the laundry room was fantastic. The DVD collection in the condo alone made the free DVD rental in the complex a non-necessity! We love love loved the homely and beautiful balcony which was recessed from the other units in the complex allowing more privacy! We watered the plants because they were just too beautiful to let them succumb to the July heat. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever stayed in and we are in our forties with two young children! When I had a question, I sent a message to Phil and he quickly replied! I have no complaints about this condo. There was construction on the unit above us which didn't allow for sleeping in but with two young children, that doesn't happen anyway! I believe people that were smarter than we, put luggage carts in their condo Friday evening because we had to wait over 30 minutes to get one at checkout on Saturday! Overall, I would stay here again but at a much quieter time of year! Thank you for sharing your home away from home with our family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay and the extra amenities we provide in Unit 705! We do our best to ensure guests feel like it's just as much their place as it is ours. We are sorry to hear about the early morning noise above you during your stay. Although our complex isn't under any construction, we don't have much control over when or what individual owners do to their units. However, there is a rule in place that prevents construction projects with noise from starting before 9am. Guests can report violations to our 24 hour security staff or our management office in the lobby. We will be sure to share this feedback with them so they can provide a reminder to all owners. A special thanks for watering the plants on the balcony! We feel it adds to the coziness of the space, but it is tough to maintain without help from our guests - so much appreciated! If your travel plans bring you back to PCB, we hope you will once again select Unit 705 for your stay. Thanks again for your business and review. Best regards - Phil & Becky
